The Rothschild family is a wealthy and a quite mysterious family descending from Mayer Amschel Rothschild. He was a German Jew who established his first banking business in Frankfurt in the 1760s. Mayer Amschel Rothschild held a prestigious position of court Jew, meaning a Jewish banker who handled the finances of European royalty and nobility. Mayer Amschel Rothschild managed to hand on his wealth and established an international banking family through his five sons, who continued their financial banking career in Paris, Vienna, Naples and Frankfurt.

The Rothschild family are considered to have made the largest private fortune in the world. According to a lot of people they have this astronomic fortune since the 19th century. Today, Rothschild businesses are made on a smaller scale comparing to what they were throughout the 19th century, although they still encompass a diverse range of fields such as real estate, financial services, wine and lots of charities.

The prominent member of the Rothschild family nowadays is Jacob Rothschild, an investment banker who is also chairman of RIT (Rothschild Investment Trust) Capital Partners plc. It is one of the largest investments trusts in the world quoted on the London Stock Exchange.

It seems now that there is nothing wrong with this family. It is just a very rich family who has a lot of expertise in the financial world. One just has to be lucky to born in this family to be prosperous and heritage not only the fortune but also the outstanding investment skills.

However, there are a lot of conspiracy theories about this family. I would like to emphasize a couple of these theories and it is up to you to decide whether they can be regarded as true or as utter nonsense.

One of the most famous theories is that the Rothschild family owns almost all the central banks in the world and destroys everyone who tries to stop them.

To explain where this theory came from, we go back to the founding father of the family, Mayer Amschel Rothschild. He was a gold dealer and keeper. The wealthy people and royalty brought their gold to Rothschild in exchange for a document, which stated the amount of gold that was stored. After a couple of years, Mayer Amschel Rothschild had quite a lot of these documents and he used these documents to do transactions without needing to withdraw the gold. The vicious Mayer Amschel Rothschild saw that the stored gold barely was claimed by anyone because the documents worked like banknotes. This gave Mayer Amschel Rothschild the idea to lend out the gold to third parties in exchange for a high interest rate. He was therefore the first ‘banker’ but he could be considered as a criminal as well, because he broke the trust of the people who stored the gold.

The most important of the five sons was Nathan Mayer Rothschild. Driven by the success of his father, he was obsessed by the wish to set up a central bank with the right to create money. He used the Bank of England that was founded in 1694 as an example. That situation was the ‘central’ bank for the British government, which was controlled by King Willem III. This bank was founded because they promised Willem III to become king if he gave the influential bankers the right to create money. Nathan Mayer Rothschild got control of the Bank of England in 1814 due to manipulations of the stock exchanges during the fall of the Napoleon Bonaparte Empire. His famous saying also from that period is: ‘Give me control of a nation’s money, and I care not who makes the laws’.

The grandchildren of Nathan and other descendants continued Nathan’s work to get control of almost all the central banks worldwide, including the Federal Reserve in 1913. They are doing this by buying all the governments bonds of all the countries in the world with use of the money they create (!) by themselves. The government deficits are so big at the moment that they can never be paid back. The governments have to pay interests of these bonds and if you consider that this is already going on for 250 years and there are almost 200 countries, you could think of the enormous staggering wealth of the Rothschild family. It is so big that it is even difficult to present it in numbers but it is estimated on $490.000.000.000.000.000. This means that if they shared it with everyone on this planet, each person would have $70.000.000. Their wealth gives the family a lot of power, so that indeed they do not have to worry about who makes the law. This exactly reflects the idea presented by Nathan Mayer Rothschild. They are the biggest creditors in the world and they leave whole (poor) countries in tears.

Another theory is that everyone who tries to stop them and their enormous interest revenues will not make it alive. Examples are the assassination of the presidents Lincoln, Garfield and Kennedy.
Even a recent example of another theory is the missing flight MH370. According to International Business Times, on board of flight MH370, there were four owners of a patent of a microprocessor used for military radar systems established by the company Freescale. The total amount of owners of the patent was five persons. You can say that it is coincidence but the fifth owner is Jacob Rothschild. 16 other employees of Freescale were also on board of flight MH370…

Furthermore, there are conspiracy theories that the Rothschild family started wars in the countries where they did not have the controlling power yet, such as Libya, Iraq and other Arabic countries. These countries have central banks that are not controlled by the Rothschild family. It could be the case that the United States invaded these countries for that reason. However, they needed a reason to invade a country like Iraq without making it look suspicious. Some people say that they this by the 9/11 attacks. Lots of people are convinced that 9/11 was indeed an inside job. The leader of Iraq and the leader of Libya, Hussein and Khadaffi were also killed because they wanted to sell their oil in Diran (Arabic currency) instead of US Dollars, which is a downfall for the Federal Reserve if they had the chance to do it.

Another thing that is often related to the Rothschild family is Illuminati. This is a group of families including the Rothschild family and, for instance, also the Rockefeller family, who calls themselves enlightened. They control a lot of influential organizations such as the Vatican, United Nations, the World Bank, CIA, NSA and NASA. The illuminati are working for almost a decade to create a New World Order. This means that the world only has a single government who controls everything and the normal people do not have any rights anymore. People say that Illuminati have no respect for how the world is in its current state and that they want to do everything to change it.

After reading this, your view of the current world situation may have changed. Is it really that Carlos Slim, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are poor fellas compared to the Rothschild family? Is it really true that the Rothschild family caused wars and killed presidents of the United States? Is it really the case that there are people who want to create a new world order? Is it really so that the most influential companies are actually corrupt?
Many people are intrigued by the mystery and legends that arose around this family and they attempt to investigate what is actually the truth. The conspiracy theories are very diverse. Personally I do not know what to believe, due to the amount of different theories. Some theories are quite believable where other ones are very unlikely.
